Sen. Kerry Wants to Force FBI to Release More Files on MLK

mlkBy Allan Lengel

WASHINGTON – Sen. John Kerry plans to introduce legislation requiring the FBI to release more records relating to Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., the Boston Globe is reporting.

The bill would require that all the files be “located, reviewed, and released by a review board at the National Archives similar to those established for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and for Nazi war criminals,” the paper reported.

The move is part of a broader effort to find out what the government did or didn’t do about violence against blacks during the civil rights movement, the Globe reported.

“There are a lot of unanswered questions,” Representative John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat and former King aide who was brutally beaten during a civil rights march in 1965 told the Globe. “The American people have a right to know what happened.”

The paper reported that a social studies teacher researching a book about plots to kill King discovered that the FBI files included information about a Ku Klux Klan leader “who claimed to have a played a role” in the 1968 assassination, the Globe reported.
